the Russian ship-building to a new level of development. The Far East sub-holding of the Corporation should be placed at the ship-yard "Zvezda", Serguey
Ro believes. The ship-yard "Zvezda" as of to-day is one of the leaders of the Far East ship-building. The ship-yard preserved the collective of
professionsl, is constantly modernizing the technological process and "is capable to accomplish both the defense and the civil orders" the member of the
APFIC Council noted. In his report Serguey Ro also mentioned the geo-political significance of the fishery industry of the Far East, which: "ensures the
presence and the occupation of people in the remote frontier territories, the use of the marine living resources within the exclusive economic zone of our
country. Thus the fishermen should actively defend their interests, attaining a protectionism policy first of all for the fishing vessels building", -
Serguey Munsekovich Ro told.
According to the director of the Far East ship-yard "Zvezda" Yuriy Shulgan, "the ship-yard has enough forces to build within a year the head vessel in
the series and within less than eight months the serial vessels of the RS-450 type".

but those modern ones and the Fishery Department is ready to support the fishermen in the issues of new vessels building.

Primorsky territory, built with the use of the leasing scheme. Obviously that, notwithstanding certain minor problems with the building, the financing
scheme was chosen quite successfully.
The head of the department for ship-building and ship-repair of the Primorsky territory Administration, Alexander Ivanyuta, reported, that in the
Primorsky territory a "huge experience is available which would permit to build large tonnage vessels".

building there still remains the consolidation of the fishermen themselves. All the issues should be solved jointly.
